Thanksgiving Thoughts


Funniest Thanksgiving Menu Item: Pickled Eggs. They’re purple! My neighbor eats ‘em every year. He’s from Pennsylvania, so maybe that explains it.


Ugliest Thanksgiving Decoration: Anything with a turkey, especially anything you have to eat off of. Almost as ugly as fish platters.


Worst Thanksgiving Tradition: Watching football all day long. Especially if you actually hate the sport but watch just so you don’t get stuck doing dishes. (Disclaimer: I love football, but only when my favorite team is playing.)


Coolest Thanksgiving Tradition: An organized football game at the neighborhood park Thanksgiving morning.


My Vote for New Thanksgiving Tradition: Paper plates.


Best Kept Thanksgiving Secret: Costco pies. As good as the homemade varieties.


Most Revolting Thanksgiving Chore: Taking bag of giblets out of turkey butt or stuffing turkey butt. Really, anything that involves raw bird meat. And butts.


Coolest Thanksgiving Day Parade Float: The one with the huge, floating super hero or cartoon character.


Most Memorable Thanksgiving Moment: When my little boy thanked God for me.

I totally agree with you here. I don't understand the concept behind dishes that portray the animals that the meat came from. Here's what we have to eat, and here's what it looked like when it was alive! That's how I spell appetizing.

My mother-in-law is Thai, so I'm getting Thai food for Thanksgiving. :)
